Tom, GIz.....we could name several indeed. However, the only band that both of you mentioned that I would put in the top ten would be the WDR Band. Actually I would put them in my top five and boot someone to six. I forgot about them but the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, The Finnish Aftro Cuban Jazz Orchestra, and The NW Prevailing Winds as well as a few others but I focused on MY favorite five at the moment. My opinion again and my decision with this is based solely on a plethora of musical criteria .....things such as intonation (a couple of the ones you listed have serious problems in this area), cohesiveness (Ditto), textures, improvisational/compositional balance, time, level of writing and arranging and improvisation, dynamic ranges, predictability, inventiveness, etc.....not names or hype. I would probably raise your eyebrows as to why I wouldn't have those groups you mentioned in my top five but that would fall deeply into a musical discussion and I try to avoid that on
 the list.
